The pay off line in Father John Misty’s new track flips ‘Holy Hell’ on its head

Apathy is not where it's at

You’ve noticed how miserable everyone’s been recently, right? Over night Father John Misty posted a new track called ‘Holy Hell’ that at first appears to pile on the despondency that 2016 has beaten us all into. As with all of FJM’s songs though, things aren’t quite what they seem, and by the end of this sparse, slow song the singer’s message is clear – we don’t have to let the misery of recent political events kill us all.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
